Day 6- Monemvasia- Today we head down the coast to our magical destination of Monemvasia.

After lunch we snake our way down the mountain pass and check ourselves into the castle for three nights.
Day 7- The Mani- We start the day with an invigorating yoga session to get our spirit moving and then we head out to The Mani Peninsula.

Day 8 - A spiritual day off spent inside the castle... Energizing sun salutation yoga to start our day. A healthy breakfast with fresh squeezed juice and herbal tea to fortify us for our exploration of Monemvasia and an invigorating swim by the castle wall. You're guaranteed find a quiet spot to meditate in one of the many nestled nooks or climb to the top and write your own poetry.

Day 9- Arcadia- We bid goodbye to our castle home and head northwest towards Kastanitsa, Dimitsana and Lagadia, all located in The Arcadian Province of the Peloponnese. We rest by the river Lucius for a refreshing lunch and go into a meditative flow by the water's edge. In the early evening we check into our hotel in Lagadia.
Day 10- We jump on our steeds and ride to Olympia via the gorge, which involves some sublime twisties through the Arcadian forests. We explore the ancient site and learn all about the Olympic games. On the return, we detour to Apollo's temple outside of Stemnitsa, perched on the edge to enlightenment. There you will find Your Spirit, and You will soar as high as the Eagles fly...
Day 11- We leave the magical town of Lagadia and head towards Lake Ladona and the ski resort town of Kalavrita. The riding here is magical, as tight and ever demanding views vie for your attention between the road and them. Upon arrival to Kalavrita we learn of the great tragedy that occurred there during the Second World War. With heavy hearts of what we've learned we find solace in the ride to Athens. That evening we band together for a mindful meditation combined with a serene yoga session. Let us learn from the mistakes of the past.
Day 12- As this part of our journey comes to a close we hope it leaves each of us renewed, rejuvenated and more mindful riders for future adventures to come...
